Woodpecker/Bird Repellent "Flasher"
The Flasher Woodpecker/Bird Deterrent is wind operated and it is best hung from the outside corner of buildings. At this location it can receive wind from 270 degress, as well as increasing visibility to the woodpecker. If trees are present at these locations, move the flasher to a point that receives not only wind but is visible from the area that is receiving woodpecker damage. It is usually not necessary to put it directly at the point of activity, however try to keep it within 20 feet of the damage area. Comes complete with a wire arm for mounting with a drywall screw to the side of the structure.
When using for woodpeckers, cover over any holes that are large enough for the woodpeckers to enter, immediately after installation of flashers. When using for swallows, knock down the nests immediately after installation. Do not be alarmed if the nest needs to be knocked down a few times before activity is reduced.
This product has shown some promise as a deterrent for geese on lawns; hang in a windy/ sunny area 10-12 feet off the ground. If the birds seem to get used to the presence of the flasher after awhile, try moving it to a new location.
NOTE: Avoid attaching to metal chimney caps as sound from spinning flasher may carry through structure.
